Dinwiddie Street Housing
Mistick has begun construction for Phase II of the Dinwiddie Street housing project in Pittsburgh, PA. Phase I was completed in March of 2011 and TREK Development released Mistick to continue with Phase II in May of 2011. Similar to Phase I, Phase II will be urban infill housing comprised of 23 units. The buildings will blend in with the surrounding streetscape and be a mix of one, two and three bedroom units, with eight different building types. Mistick anticipates completion in February of 2012.
The Dinwiddie Street Housing project is comprised of a six-unit apartment buidling, each with two bedrooms, and 17 townhouse units each with three bedrooms. Two units are fully accessible, and one is designed for the hearing and visually impaired. Of the townhouses, 14 are new construction and three are remodeled. The exterior finishes will be a mix of residential elements that include metal siding, Aztec trim and brick features. The project will be constructed to Energy Star standards. Additionally, the HVAC system is a geothermal system of deep wells with independent heat pumps at each of the individual units.
The site required demolition of existing structures as part of the site preparation and throught the project duration, requires Mistick's expertise in urban-setting work. Mistick continues to work closely with community members to limit disruption of the neighborhood and has coordinated with local community groups to hire local personnel to supplement the labor force.
